In honor of the new year, I thought it was fitting to do an overview of the previous year. 2018, the hardest year of my life. 2018 challenged me in every aspect of my being. I never thought a year could get so difficult. Filled with both good and bad challenges, 2018 will forever be the year that shaped me into the adult I am becoming.
In brief, in 2018 I started my blog, made some amazing new friends and started a YouTube channel. Those are some of the amazing things that have happened to me. Some things that were not so amazing was the fact that I had to become a 100% cane user, that I had terrible body image and that I developed a very hindering anxiety problem.
I know that Jesus gives us challenges to help us grow stronger in our faith and I can wholeheartedly say that the challenges he gave me really made me doubt my faith, but in the end they brought me so much closer to him. I want to thank the people that have pushed me to go past my breaking point and still keep pushing on.
This year has brought so many tears and struggles, but in the end I have conquered things I never thought possible for myself. I have overcome challenges I never thought I would have to face. I know this is getting a little raw, but the let us remember that the goal of my blog is to be absolutely real with you guys. This year has been tough, but it has also been the most rewarding year of my life. I can not believe the changes I have gone through and looking at myself in the mirror today, I could not be more grateful for 2018.
Sometimes we have to look at the things that challenged us the most and think of them as being the best possible scenarios that could have happened in our life. I want the world to know that even if life gets hard and you think you absolutely can not move on, there will be a point where it calms down and gets better. I almost made a rash decision this year, I will not go into detail, but it could have been devastating to not only me but those around me.
Because of my parents and my amazing therapists, I am feeling better than I ever thought possible. I have reached deep inside and pulled out my inner more positive self. I love the woman that is going into 2019, and without the challenges and hardships of 2018, I would not be that woman.
This blog has changed my life and I could not be more thankful for all the comments I get every day boosting me to work harder. Wish me luck this semester, I have 2 AP’s, 1 Honors, and one math class.
I love all of you and I hope that in 2019, you can start fresh with a clean slate and look at everything you do in a positive way. I know that I sure can. Make resolutions and stick to them. You will not regret it. I will update you guys when I know more about other things in my life. For now, all I can say is a huge thank you to those who continue to support me. You blow me away with your kindness! Love you all to pieces.
As always, please feel free to leave a comment on my blog telling me what you think! Continue to spread the word of positivity and laugh everyday.
